Lee Kyoo-man’s upcoming crime drama ‘The Policeman’s Lineage’ follows two policemen who have different approaches to dealing with crimes and criminals. One goes by the rulebook and believes that no one is above the law, while the other thinks that catching criminals at any cost cannot be illegal, no matter the methods they apply.
In the film, Min-Jae (Choi Woo-Sik) is a young cop who is a man of principle and always goes by the law, but his superior and well-known Kang-yoon (Cho Jin-Woong) does not mind getting to the other side of the law in order to get information using illegal methods. So, when the two cops team up for an investigation, there are bound to have some effects on the police organization.
